Dominic Galicia obtained his professional degree in architecture in 1988 from the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana, where he was a Notre Dame Scholar. In June 2005, he received a University of Notre Dame Distinguished Asian Pacific Alumni Award. He also studied architecture for a year at Notre Dame's campus in Rome, and pursued graduate studies in architecture at Pratt Institute in New York.
He is a licensed architect in both the Philippines and New York State.
Although a modernist by philosophy, he is deeply concerned with the preservation of historic architectural sites. He has served as Vice President of the Heritage Conservation Society, sits on its Advisory Council, and represents it on the Executive Council of the National Committee on Monuments and Sites (NCMS) of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), and on the Board of Trustees of the Philippine Green Building Initiative (PGBI). He represents the Philippines in the International Scientific Committee on Twentieth-century Heritage (ISC20C) of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), in which capacity he helped to develop “BPO@Escolta,” the public-private initiative to revive Manila’s historic downtown.
